Jittery pan with still image


I’m trying to pan from left to right on a still image. When using keyframes with the “size, position and rotate” filter, the pan looks very jittery. Is there a way to get a smooth pan?

Thanks so much,


When this happens, it usually means the Video Mode has a frame rate that is too low. Another potential issue is simply panning faster than the frame rate can support. Pans will not have motion blur added by Shotcut, so that limits the pan speed even more.

If you do not increase the frame rate of Video Mode, then this means you need to make the image longer duration.

Thank you all. I took the advice given here, and after some tweaking and experimentation I got it to be pretty good. Thanks again!
